my happy salad

Bright colors make me happy. Varied textures make me happy. Both of these things in my salad makes me very happy indeed!

Hence I've titled this one my Happy Salad. 

1 bunch of kale, removed from ribs and cut into chunky pieces
1 avocado, cubed
8 cherry tomatoes, halved
2 large heirloom carrots sliced into 1/2-inch rounds
12 green beans sliced into 1-inch pieces
1/8 cup sesame seeds sprinkled on top

This salad goes great with either a honey mustard vinaigrette or goddess dressing. 

Eat it and be happy!
